The internet has become fertile ground for cyber fraud. This is affecting everyone in the e-commerce chain and can cause catastrophic damages in just seconds, by way of ruining credit scores, exposing personal information, identity theft, etc. For retailers, damages can range from lost sales and devastation of brand reputation to regulatory fines and penalites.
